10 Things Not To Miss At Hampton Court Palace If You're A Tudor Fan

I am SUCH a royal history lover. I honestly cannot get enough of reading about, watching, visiting, anything to do with the British monarchy past and present, particularly the Tudor era. For Christmas Adam surprised me with an annual membership for Royal Historic Places for us both, which completely made my Christmas! With our memberships we can visit Kensington Palace, Kew Palace, The Tower Of London and also one of my favourite places in the entire world - Hampton Court Palace.

Social Anxiety, Blogging, And Me



I don't always feel the way that I do right now, thankfully.

A lot of the time I'm bouncing about, laughing, joking, seeing the positive side of life with a full heart and immense pride for the life I've built up.

But then there are times like now, times that seemingly come out of the blue (though I don't doubt there are triggers). Times when I feel like I'm constantly fighting back tears despite not showing it outwardly, times when there feels like an elephant sitting on my chest, pushing against it and making it feel difficult to breathe as normal. Times when my head feels heavy and jumbled and full of thoughts I feel like I'm not putting there.

Social anxiety makes you feel different to other people. It makes me feel odd. I can mostly, (when I'm not going through a particularly hard phase of anxiety) embrace the 'I feel different to other people' feeling. I can at times celebrate what makes me different and take pride in it. But I'd be a liar if I said that those feelings didn't also sometimes turn dark, leaving me with a head full of self-doubt, low self-esteem and a lack of self-confidence and self-worth.

How I'm Digitally Decluttering

These days we spend so much time online, don't we? So it's of course only natural that just like when we spend a lot of time in our homes and then occasionally need to have a big declutter, that that would be the case for our digital space too.

Our productivity levels increase when we work at a desk which is kept clear, tidy and minimal. It helps us to focus and I believe that this exact same thing applies to the digital space we work with too, which is why I am digitally decluttering (and feeling so much better for doing so!). Below I thought I would share some of the ways that I am keeping my online/digital space as clear as possible to help me stay focused, help me to be more productive and stop me from being drawn in by unhelpful noise.

Hello 2019 - My Own Personal Goals For The Year Ahead

Happy new year everyone! Can you believe that we're here in January already - starting a brand new year?! 2018 was a year full of mostly happy memories for us. I mean, we’ve had some some downs for sure. Like with the fact that I spent a lot of the year suffering and worrying about my health and then we lost a large chunk of money when our gardener/builder decided to run away and not finish the job. And then more recently of course, Charlie our cat, broke his leg and had to have it amputated after months of us trying to save it for him. 

But, we’ve also had some amazing highs like a trip to Disneyland Paris in March which we loved so much. And like renovating our home and (despite the trouble with the builder) having it all finished for Christmas. We also took a big family trip to Cornwall and then Adam and I celebrated turning 30 with a trip the spa and then also a couples trip to Dubrovnik which was incredible. We’ve also celebrated personal work achievements and goals and both feel so thankful for the fact that we’ve been able to work for ourselves for yet another year which we love doing. 

But most of all we’re ending 2018, like we do each day, feeling thankful for the simple fact that we’re lucky enough to have each other and to have our health and our happiness. Because when all is said and done, that’s what matters the most isn’t it?!

Our Christmas 2018


Hello! - Sorry that it's been a while. I ended up taking a couple of weeks off over Christmas whilst the boys were off school to enjoy the time with them and to soak up all the of Christmas festivities and it was lovely, so lovely. But it's good to be back - it's good to be back into a sort of routine again and to be back writing on here.

Christmas this year was like a dream. I really did have such a nice time. The thing is is that since becoming a parent Christmas time has become more and more one of my favourite times of the year. My excitement levels seem to increase each year as the boys get older and understand and appreciate it all more and more. Adam and I try, like most parents do, to make the whole of December and the big build up to Christmas as exciting as possible for the boys. We want them to grow up with the fondest Christmas memories and we want to start and pass on traditions that they'll hopefully carry on when they have their own families.

A Monthly Family Album For Grandparents In Just 2 Minutes - Neveo Review

In this age of modern technology and the Internet it's become easy to keep up with other peoples lives. We can send, receive and share photographs and moments at the touch of a fingertip. But it can be easy to forget that not everybody is a whizz at technology or even has access to the Internet. 

Look at our children's great-grandparents and even some grandparents for example, they grew up without the Internet and it would be wrong to assume that they completely understand how to use it to stay up to date with all the family going on's.
